Dyson will build a 16-kilometer circuit for electric carsSeptember 2, 2018
The company Dyson invested in the creation of a technological complex
The manufacturer of vacuum cleaners Dyson has invested 200 million pounds sterling in the expansion of its own technological complex located on the airfield in Hallavington (Wiltshire, Great Britain). At the moment, two hangars of 1938 have been restored, which have been turned into jobs for engineers responsible for developing an electric vehicle. This has already been spent 84 million pounds.
400 Dyson engineers have already moved to new jobs. In the near future three more buildings will be restored, which will increase the area of the testing center by 15 thousand square meters, a research and development site for 45 thousand square meters and two thousand jobs has been built, and 16 kilometers of test tracks for the development and testing of cars have been laid.
The composition of the circuit will include trails for adjusting controllability, imitating off-road, achieving maximum speed, and roads with hills, turns, lifts and descents of different steepness for transmission tests.
About the plan of the company Dyson to release the electric car became known last year. The development of models and the launch of a series of solid-state batteries will be invested a total of two billion pounds sterling. In this case, the manufacturer intends to create all the components of the machines independently, without using any third-party ready solutions.
It is assumed that the cars of James Dyson will be sold under the brand Digital Motor. The initial line of the brand will include three models, detailed information about which yet.
It is expected that the first Dyson electric car will appear in 2020.
